Elephant Toothpaste

Submitted by denise.taylor on

On September 24, my class did the "Elephant Toothpaste" experiment. We were told by Mr. Lai to take beakers, large water bottles, yeast, hot water, and a little cup to put the hot water and yeast. But we forgot another ingredient, soap! So when you're doing an experiment, please remember to make sure you have everything. We mixed the yeast inside then went outside with all of our supplies! There is a little sewer drain next to our playground, we used that so we didn't have a mess! Sadly without the soap, our experiment didn't work out too well.

Civics Engagement Day

Submitted by denise.taylor on

Who gets to sit in a Representative's chair for an extended period of time, besides an elected official? These students from Spring Lake Elementary did. Invited by Representative Doug Welton, the students participated in Civics Engagement Day and got as close to being a legislator as it could get for a 5th grader. After a lesson on law making with Rep. Welton, and a brief tour, the students had the opportunity to propose, debate and vote on "mock"-bills on the House Floor of the Utah State Capitol.
